j5create, a world leader in high tech computer accessories, and Intel, the world’s largest manufacturer of semiconductor chips, are working together to develop one of the world’s first USB4 multi-port adapters. USB4 is the latest USB specification offering several improvements over legacy USB-C adapters including higher transfer speeds, more efficient bandwidth allocation between data and display protocols, as well as backward compatibility with older USB and Thunderbolt specifications.
“We’re thrilled to work with Intel to bring the latest USB peripherals to market.” said Steven Lyu, Chief Operating Officer at j5create. “We are always innovating to deliver high-performance solutions users have been anticipating through a variety of products, technologies, and design collaborations.”
The USB4 multi-port adapters will be one of the first to incorporate the latest Intel USB4 controller, offering Thunderbolt compatibility and USB legacy support. Set to release in Q1 2022, these USB4 multi-port adapters provide efficient and dynamic bandwidth allocation up to 20 Gbps and dual 4K video support in addition to high-speed peripheral ports.
The j5create USB4 multiport adapters are expected to be available in stores in Europe from the beginning of August at a recommended retail price of 124.99 euros / £124.99.
